I need to delete the first space of each cell in a column. These cells are referenced in a formula, and those cells that have a character in the first space of each cell allows the formula to work. However, most of the cells have one space before the characters begin in each cell. When I go to one of those cells and delete the empty space then the formula works for that cell. My problem is I need to reformat hundreds of cells in that column but not all. I would like to be able to highlight those that need the first space deleted and not do this one cell at a time.
I am interested in some sort of macro or formula that will strip all of the characters in a cell that come after that last space. My difficulty lies in that the string isn't a constant character count nor is the string always the same.

I often have to work in Excel-spreadsheets which provide values to me in a rather unpractical way. For some reason, every cell entry starts with a space, followed by the value. It makes it impossible to start calculating with the values right away.
I tried replace: " " with: "" But that way all the spaces in the sheet are removed, not just the spaces at the start of each cell. I would like to avoid that, as it makes the descriptions a bit difficult to read...
So, any ideas on how to write a little macro (or a tric in Excel itself) which I can use to quickly get rid of those spaces and start calculating?
I'm trying to automate the importing and processing of a fairly large formatted text file (~15000 lines) containing many tables of data. I've been refining this process for several months and recently was alerted to a problem. A few of my tables have widths greater than 255 characters (309 to be exact).
My process involves opening the text file in Excel then performing a .Copy on the Worksheet into ThisWorkbook, naming the sheet "Source". I then perform up to 66 separate parse operations on the various tables depending on which options a user selected from a form.
The problem is that I assumed that the Copy Method would simply make a duplicate of that sheet in ThisWorkbook. Instead, it seems to have truncated any columns that are longer than 255 characters, leaving me with partial data in a few tables.
My workaround was to perform a TextToColumns on the text file prior to the import such that it would simply split the data into columns that could be reassembled on the other side. In doing so, I seemed to have stripped a leading <space> from each cell which was apparently put there previously. This is causing a lot of problems for my formatting code which also uses TextToColumns to separate the tables into columns. The simplest solution seems to be trying to add the spaces back in, assuming there isn't a better way to import this data in the first place.
Just prior to copying the sheet into ThisWorkbook, I'm using the following code after the TextToColumns to add the space back in, but it's taking an awfully long time and causing a noticable time delay in processing my code and adding considerable size to the finished workbook it creates. If someone could recommend a better solution, either to the import process or to replace this God-awful loop, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
Application. ScreenUpdating = False For i = 1 To 65535 wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,3).Formula = " " & wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,1).Value wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,4).Formula = " " & wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,2).Value wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,1).Formula = wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,3).Value wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,2).Formula = wkbk.Sheets(1).Cells(i,4).Value Next i wkbk.Sheets(1).Range("C:D").ClearContents Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Also, I don't know how long the actual file will be, so I'm almost forced to assume 65535...
I have a column of data that should be showing as currency but will not format that way because there is a space at the end of the cents. I tried doing a CtrL+H and replace the space with nothing but the space remains.
I have a database that is growing and growing now obviously the more i put in it the bigger it gets
i have a cell that says something like "uk open welsh regional finals" now to cut this down i would like to just put "uowrf" and when i hover the cell or even click the cell it would tell me what them initials stood for
I am facing problem to delete the blank Space before & after the sentence in excel Cell.I have thousand No. of Rows for which I want to delete the Empty Space before & after the Sentence.May I know how I will do this in quick way.
I am trying to write a custom cell format that would allow me to replace the comma with a space after the thousand's place. Therefore, 1 million would look like: 1 000 000 instead of 1,000,000. I do NOT want to change my regional settings to accomplish this.
When I write ### ### ### it accomplishes this, however, there is one small glitch. When you apply an "underline" you get the following result:
i would like to split it over multiple columns. Let me be a little more specific. my data is arranged as follows in the cell
abcd<space><enter> efgh<space><enter> ijlk<space>
I want it as follows in ONE cell as follows
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 abcd efgh ijkl
1. "Data -->Text to columns" : doesn't work for some reason, only my first string "abcd" is being read. Please do remember I have more than a thousand entries so manual change on each cell would be difficult.
2. =clean() : removes the spaces making data splitting impossible.
